It’s not paranoia if everyone is always out to get you, right?

Patrick Bamford, rightly, was given a two-match ban for blatantly simulating getting a punch and getting Aston Villa’s El Gharzi sent off. Of course, Bamford is not the only player to have ever dived this season, and yet Leeds are the one who suffer.

And for the punch from Conor Hourihane on Mateusz Klich? It was ruled as not “violent conduct” which means that any one of us should be allowed to punch someone from the FA anytime we like, and if they complain just reply, hey, it’s not violent, what’s your problem?

On to the links.
